Guide for Justice-Involved Individuals with Substance Use Disorders
With the alarming increase in fatal and non-fatal overdoses related to the opioid epidemic and the rising rates of stimulant use, the need for cross-system collaboration and the development of partnerships between justice and medical professionals has never been greater. This resource guide is intended to give the justice community a stronger understanding of the medical aspects of these disorders and the evidence-based prevention and treatment needed to address them to be effective.
Community Supervision and MOUD
Many people on community supervision who have an opioid use disorder never get the high-quality care needed to recover. There are many reasons for this including logistical barriers, lack of access to evidence-based treatments, and stigma. As a professional working with people on probation/ parole, you can change that. The toolkit provides knowledge and resources to respond to the treatment needs of individuals under supervision.
